We first saw Clara at the Baldwin Park Shelter in Los Angeles with no hair and her body covered in bloody scabs. Staff were unsure what was causing the condition, but a visit to the vet saw her diagnosed with a severe case of mange. Even though she was not feeling 100%, Clara remained full of loving puppy antics – always giving tons of kisses and playing around. After weeks of treatment that included dips and antibiotics, she made a full recovery and was adopted by Jessica, who soon got to find out for herself what a wonderful dog Clara is.
I wanted to send you a note as I have been out of touch and let you know that Clara has been doing great. She is a wonderful dog and she and Rocko are a pair. They really do compliment each other and they have a great level of play together. Rocko has given up (or Clara has taken) some of his ball time to tug and wrestle with her and they have a blast. These photos are of Clara at her lounging best. Next up is a training class or two…; )
Sorry for the quality of the photos (or lack of) but here is a shot of Clara and Rocko. I actually got a sitting photo as well. They of course look nothing alike, but I love in the sitting shot how they have the same little barrel chest – too cute!
Thanks again for everything and especially her foster mom for telling me A LOT about Clara so she came into a home with me knowing what to expect.
